Chisora for Monaco bout

HARARE - Zimbabwe-born boxer Dereck Chisora will challenge Agit Kabayel for the German’s EBU heavyweight title during the Monte-Carlo Boxing Bonanza in Monaco at the prestigious Salle Medecin on November 4.

Chisora will hope to win the belt for the second time, having previously held it from September 2013 to November 2014.

The 33-year-old will fight on the undercard of the WBA world light heavyweight title fight between Dmitry Bivol and Trent Broadhurst, which co-headlines the Monte-Carlo Boxing Bonanza show.

Also co-headlining the bill, organised by Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn, is the WBA world bantamweight title bout between holder Jamie McDonnell and Liborio Solis.

The two fighters fought for the belt on last year’s event at the Salle des Etoiles, with Englishman McDonnell beating the Venezuelan by unanimous decision.

Scott Quigg is also in action in Monaco in November against Oleg Yefimovych, with more bouts to be announced in the coming weeks.

“We are delighted to be back in Monaco for an incredible evening of World Championship Boxing live on Sky Sports in the UK and HBO across America,” said Hear.

“I’m excited to watch Dmitry Bivol, one of the most exciting young fighters in World boxing and of course to see the World title rematch of Jamie McDonnell vs. Liborio Solis after their last close encounter.

“Former World champ Scott Quigg has one of the toughest tests in his career so far against the highly ranked Yefimovich and Heavyweight Dereck Chisora is in an all-out war with current European Champion Agit Kabayel.

“This is a special event in a special place and we can’t wait to take the Sky Sports and HBO cameras to Monaco on November.”
